Oxford School District Recipes

13 Mar

Sometimes I come across recipes in interesting places.

A couple of weeks ago I found a link to a recipe page on the Oxford School District site. Surprisingly, it wasn’t filled with recipes for corn dogs and tator tots, but rather some pretty tasty sounding dishes. The Cilantro-Chipotle Tilapia recipe below is one of many. Visit the site to peruse more.

My only question is, are the students in Oxford being offered these meals for lunch? If so, I think I may need to go back to school!
